Product Review: WotNot Facial Wipes

Once upon a time I had all the time in the world to dedicate to my skincare regime. That all changed just over a month ago when I gave birth to our beautiful son Oliver (if you’ve missed the pics, you can see them here).
Before then I have to be very honest and admit that I rarely used facial wipes. I usually just bought them to bring with me on long haul flights. But now having a newborn, I now either do sadly not have the time to wash my face properly, or if I’m lucky that Oliver is already sleeping, then I am simply too tired to do so, and just can’t get into bed fast enough. And that’s where I’ve discovered that facial wipes are so handy. Here are my thoughts on the *WotNot Facial Wipes;

What They Say:
"WotNot facial wipes use a 100% natural cloth which is luxuriously soft and pampering. Our formula is enriched with all natural ingredients."

RRP: $7.95 (25 wipes) – Available from Eco Direct, select health stores and pharmacies nationwide.

What I Say:
I have never before used any products from WotNot, so I was pleasantly surprised when I realised that WotNot has the belief that "facial skin is so delicate that only the most natural ingredients should be used in facial case products."

This means that the WotNot facial wipes are made from 100% natural and biodegradable fibre cloth which enriched with all natural ingredients including Australian certified organic aloe vera to lubricate and repair, certified organic sweet almond oil to restore lost moisture and calm itch and inflammation, and certified organic rosehip oil for skin regeneration and moisture re-balancing. The certified organic jojoba oil base is easily absorbed to condition skin and eyelids making lashes more lush, while the naturally sourced nutrients like Vitamin E help to heal, nourish and protect leaving the skin smooth, supple and glowing.

The wipes are of course also free from alcohol and artificial perfumes, and do not contain parabens and petrochemicals, and of course the products are not tested on animals!

WotNot claims that the wipes gently wipes away any makeup including waterproof mascara, which is a very big claim. Often liquid eye makeup removers even struggle removing waterproof mascara!!

The actual wipes come in a plastic back with a resealable sticker so that the wipes don’t dry out. The square white cloths are large in size, making it easy to wipe over the full face, and they are sufficiently wet to wipe the whole face, yet not so wet that they drip with moisture.

And true to the claim they really do easily remove even long-wearing makeup and waterproof mascara. Having sensitive eyes that easily water, I usually wear waterproof mascara, but is always aware of the tear and wear of my lashes when I struggle to remove it at night. So I am really loving that these WotNot wipes remove any trace without me having to pull and drag at the sensitive eye area. And they do so without stinging in my eyes either.

And after wiping off my makeup, my skin feels lovely and soft and refreshed, and without feeling died out from the wipe. And my skin doesn’t feel sticky or greasy either.

The wipes has the most gorgeous scent, not doubt due to the natural ingredients used in the wipes. Yet this scent is quite gentle, and it does fade quickly after use.

At $7.95 for just 25 wipes, these WotNot wipes are more expensive than others on the market, which are not only cheaper, but also contain more wipes per pack. However, none of these cheaper alternatives are 100% natural and biodegradable and enriched with all natural ingredients, and I find that is well worth paying a little extra for.

So overall, I have really enjoyed using these wipes. They will never replace and cleanse your skin as thoroughly as good a job as good old fashioned cleanser, however, they really are handy to have at hand for those days where you like me just have to get to bed as quickly as possible, or maybe just cannot be bothered with a draw out cleansing routine. So I highly recommend that you try them, especially if you are looking for a more natural alternative, and if you have sensitive skin these will be perfect for you too!
